the big haul

I'm off to school early this morning to register the youngest and help kill a forest. It is amazing to me how much paper is required for a returning student. After filling out a good half dozen forms that contain basically all the same information, I'm going to drive west towards the mecca of pantry restocking: Sam's Club. I've avoided the 'big shop' all summer, but now that brown bags loom on my horizon, I need to venture forth and procure lunch packing items.

Had a bit of an epiphany yesterday. The current round of edits on Maddy Blue are focused on removing one character. Yesterday I decided to remove another one as well. In both cases, the removal has increased the potential for conflict. So, that is a very good thing.

I've been procrastinating on working on the book store publicity, but I truly need to sit down and start writing. Perhaps today....but for sure next week.

Actually picked up a book and read it yesterday. I think my bedside stack is now down to three titles. If I get a chance, I'll have to post my thoughts on it. I really liked it in some places and wanted to hurl it across the room in others. More on that later.

Glad you are being productive... wish I was more -- I have done a tiny bit of writing but nothing to talk about. I really do my best work in the fall so I am looking forward to sitting on the front porch and doing my thang.
